Sea Gulls earn six USTFCCCA All-American honors

NEW ORLEANS – The Salisbury University men's and women's track & field teams had an enormously successful NCAA Division III Indoor Championships this past weekend, and the honors from the event continue to come in as the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association released its All-American list, and all five Sea Gulls that traveled to Grinnell, Iowa earned the accolade.

Senior Luke Campbell picked up two more All-American nods for his national championships in the 60-meter hurdles, claiming the title in a time of 7.82 seconds, while he then teamed with junior Jerel Madison, and sophomores Zach Schmelz and Eric Halton to win the 4x400-meter relay title in a time of 3:16.69 for another All-American award.

Junior Meghan McGowan claimed an All-American award for her performance in the high jump, clearing a height of 5' 5", to tie for sixth in the nation. It marks her second-straight All-American in the event.

Campbell has now earned an astonishing 13 All-American awards in his career, combining indoor and outdoor events, which is among the top 10 in NCAA Division III men's track & field history.

The honor is the third for Schmelz and the second for both Halton and Madison; they are the first indoor honors for the trio.
